What a cutie!


Day 3 of “my punny Valentine!”

Again, for pun inspiration for Valentine’s Day cards, I found this page from C.R.A.F.T (creating really awesome free things) to be very helpful.

This card is for an etegami pen pal in Japan. I love his simple, elegant understated style. He does not fill in too many details, and often focuses on just one element of subject. See this image for example — just the top part of a daikon radish, with only hints of colors. I tried with these “cuties” to emulate that style, but found myself carried away with the grouping of tangerines so painted them all.
